Obama: The worst negotiator ever?

Is Obama the worst negotiator ever? At the same time that he is negogiating with the Taliban, he is simultaneously planning to start withdrawing troops from Afghanistan – effectively removing any leverage he may have. “I think this is just the new way to negotiate that I don’t quite understand yet, but I’m sure it’s all going to work out,” Glenn joked.

“ We’re going to get 10,000 (troops) out immediately and then we’ll all be out by 2014,” Pat said of Obama’s plans.

“Okay, but wait a minute. But that doesn’t sound like something that you should announce if you’re negotiating,” Glenn said.

“No, it’s a really good, it’s an excellent negotiation technique,” Pat said.

“No, I don’t think you understand how negotiation works,” Glenn shot back.
